Sealed rocker switches

By Plant Engineering Staff December 22, 2006

The KR Series is a family of sealed rocker switches with large actuator surfaces. The switches are designed for applications requiring switches to have an attractive style, superior feel and high reliability. Single and double pole models are available in a range of electrical configurations, including on-off, on-on, on-on-on and on-on-mom. Rated up to 15A at 12VDC for 10,000 cycles, additional electrical specifications include initial contact resistance of 10 milliohms, insulation resistance of 1,000 megohms at 500VDC and dielectric strength of 2,000 Vrms between terminals. The KR Series is available with solder lug/quick-connect and screw terminals and with or without a plastic barrier between terminals. Up to 10 terminals are offered to allow for multiple electrical and illumination possibilities. Materials include silver contacts and UL94-VO rated engineering plastics. The switches are designed to be mounted into a 1.450x.830-inch panel cut-out.
